Conic is a playful exploration of geometry and asymmetry, shadows and light, with a circle, a bar and a triangle. My ambition is to achieve character with a minimum of means; creating a small individual with its chin held high and a precise and distinct distribution of light and shadows - a light that forms an extension of the conical shape of the lamp. Conic is a playful take on essentials and basics without the trivialities.

Conic features a three step dimmer contact at the top of the lamp built into the lampshade and a simple cord rollup in the bottom.

Frist set of prototypes was made for the Danish Crafts exhibition; MINDCRAFT 2011 in Milan
